Closing the Loop: Giving back to Our Earth

January 11, 2013
Food Waste, Compost

Our first batch of food waste compost has arrived!

Our H&RS Grounds unit received the first delivery of compost, created and collected from Residential Dining Services’ pre and post-consumer waste program. We compost 100% of our food waste and compost approximately 22,000 pounds of waste per week in aggregate for all four Dining Commons and Special Events Catering. Dining is able to divert 94% of its total waste from the landfill, including recycling.

The first batch of compost will be used in future Housing planting projects, closing the loop and giving back to our Earth.
